The vast majority of integral membrane proteins residing within the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria adopt a β-barrel architecture. Mechanistically, how these proteins fold remains uncertain, but the process requires a number of protein nanomachines, including the translocation and assembly module (TAM). The TAM is comprised of two subunits: TamA, an integral outer membrane protein, and TamB, an inner membrane-anchored protein, and the following data suggests the TAM utilises a lateral gating mechanism to fold substrate proteins.
